Scented rhythm of love
that drags the soul into an ancient and mysterious dance,
a rainbow of Cuban sounds and smells
that colours the memory with a cool and sensual harmony,
memory of a journey that smells of beauty and freedom,
of music and poetry.”
1940s. During his tour in Cuba, an American musician loves a woman from Havana.
When he goes back to America, he brings with him the scent of those remote lands, Her perfume and the smell of that sudden and intense love.
He captures it in his memory, he sits at the piano and composes a poignant melody that carries the slow rhythm of Habanera.
